Summary
In 26 first-person stories, real teens write about their lives and how hard it is to be themselves--especially when they're bullied, picked on, pressured, excluded, and disrespected. They ask tough questions, like "Why does everyone have such a problem with me?" and "Should I change myself to fit in?" Maybe you've asked yourself these questions
Summary
Essays by teenagers describe their personal experiences with and thoughts on discrimination, harassment, stereotypes, and self-esteem
